Tower Poetry at the Cheltenham Literary Festival

Tower Poetry sponsored two events at the Cheltenham Literary Festival in 2004.  Carol Ann Duffy read some of her most recent poems at one held on 9 October. Juliet Stevenson and Ian Richardson read from Shakespeare’s Sonnets at a subsequent event held on 17 October.  Devised and presented by Stanley Wells and Paul Edmondson the evening of poetry explored the varied uses to which the poet puts the form and included favourites from the cycle side by side with lesser known poems.
